I neglected to share any pictures from Peighton's birthday party a couple of weeks ago. Here's a good one of her getting some help blowing out the candles from big sis Emma.
We're doing well here and especially enjoying the change in weather. The girls love to get outside and play. It also seems as though the warm weather has cured me of my "shanks" on the golf course.
Many people have been working diligently on the May 10th movie premiere event. Everyday brings about new developments that make things even more exciting. Rumor has it that two more stars from the movie are very interested in flying in from Ireland to participate. Some press is also being generated so get your tickets early before all of Kansas City catches on.
I've tried to keep the Crawl for Cancer roster updated with changes over the past couple of weeks. Please take another look at it (on my April 1st post) and let me know if you have any questions. I'd also like everyone to start thinking about transportation. It is a day that centers around two things - fundraising for a great cause, and beer. I want to make sure everyone has a safe ride home. We will be arranging "party buses" that will leave from the Courtyard Marriott in Blue Springs around noon on Saturday May 12th. We will hop back on the buses around 7:30 PM that evening and head back to the Marriott. I'd like to remind everyone that the Marriott has offered up rooms at a special rate of $69.00 per night if you tell them you are with the Jennifer Ireland group. It might be a great idea to crash at the hotel and sleep the pitchers off! If you are interested in riding with us, please email Rachael Althaus at email@example.com. She'll need to get a good estimate on numbers so we know how many vehicles to reserve. Depending on how many people we have riding, it will cost riders between $10 and $15. I'll be honest, last year's ride down and back on the bus was almost as fun as the Crawl itself.
I have sat down to post something here on the blog the past couple of nights but found myself catching up on some of the blogs listed in our "Cancer Blog Network." Reading a lot of these recent posts makes it difficult for me to find anything worthwhile to write about. Sometimes I feel like writing something as simple as "Please read Trent's blog and pray for peace and comfort for him"...or "Check it out - Mary has a plan!"...or "Doesn't Shawndra still make you smile, even when you know she feels like crap!." Even with the difficult times we've been through recently, each of these stories still touches me and fuels my desire to do something to help. Your continued attention and support proves you feel the same. Have a great Friday.
